I don’t think this is final but could give you a ball park figure:

A couple years ago, Synplify Pro was about $20K (US dollars), ModelSim SE about $20K, HyperLynx GHz about $47K. The lighter versions were roughly a third of that.

Xilinx stuff: ISE Foundation about $3000. WebPACK is of course free. EDK about $500. System Generator for DSP about $1000.

Yearly support is usually an unpleasant fraction of the purchase price. If you discontinue support, you stop getting software updates, and may lose access to tech support.

I wish companies would list their product prices. No fun listening to a salesman for a half hour only to learn the price is in the stratosphere. Sometimes you can find prices in the “product announcement” or “product review” sections of engineering magazines.
